Besides a fundamental introduction to and literature review of metamodeling, internationally renowned computer scientists and information systems researchers summarize their experiences with the generic multi-level metamodeling language TELOS and its implementation CONCEPTBASE in diverse application domains. In addition to basic metamodeling and semantic abstractions formalisms (Kalle Lyytinen/CASE Western University, Mohamad Dachchour and Alain Pirotte/Université Louvain), examples include telecom design (Armin Eberlein/GUtech Muscat), technology-enhanced learning (Martin Wolpers and Wolfgang Nejdl, L3S Research Center Hannover), requirements monitoring (Bill Robinson/Georgia State University), data warehouses (Christoph Quix/HAW Niederrhein), and chemical process engineering (Birgit Bayer and Wolfgang Marquardt/Jülich Research Center). Additionally, we plan to make the CD-ROM sources associated with the book (e.g. a running ConceptBase version, and various demo applications and exercises) available via
